ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the San Francisco 49ers have traded TE Vernon Davis to the Denver Broncos. In return, they will swap 6th and 7th-round selections in 2016's NFL Draft and receive a 6th-round selection in 2017.
Davis was the sixth overall selection by the 49ers in the 2006 NFL Draft. He was the 49ers' longest tenured player. Now that honor falls to T Joe Staley. Davis, a two-time Pro Bowler (2009, 2013), had 441 receptions for 5,640 yards and 55 receiving touchdowns during his career with the 49ers.
Davis was scheduled to become a free agent after this season and it was widely perceived that the 49ers would not try to re-sign him.
Here we go: 49ers trading TE Vernon Davis to Denver for 6th- and 7th-round picks this year, and a 6th-round pick in 2017, sources tell ESPN.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 2, 2015
So just to be clear in Vernon Davis trade: SF and Denver swapping 6th and 7th round picks in 2016, and 49ers get Denver's 6th in 2017.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 2, 2015
